So this post is for the “few” of you that are not frantically running around in the last minutes of the Christmas madness and want to look at a few more Christmas photos. I know it’s super late getting these up, but better late than never right? So I thought I would put up just a few photos of my Christmas decor this year. I am going to apologize in advance for some of the “not so great” pics. My camera has been broken and I have been waiting to get in my new lens and have it back up and running, but no such luck.
So anyway, this year I kept my Christmas decor very simple and kinda went for a French, rustic glam look (for lack of a better title). I incorporated a few of my architectural salvage pieces throughout the house both as accessories and as ornaments on the tree.
On the table I covered an old wooden box with burlap, added a bit of greenery and topped it with a few of my paper mache Christmas trees and one of my favorite Church houses. Glammed up my favorite candle sticks with a bit of burlap and vintage rhinestones and left it at that.
I used one of my architectural pieces on the table as a simple centerpiece. It’s a beautiful concrete piece that I turned over and filled with a bit of greenery and a few white and silver ornaments.
I thought it would look pretty this year to hang these old doors over the sofa and add just a bit of green. Trader Joes had these charming little wreaths for only $5.99! Just loved them. So wishing I would have bought more, of course when I went back they were all sold out. I pried off the old hardware (saving to use in a later project) and add these most gorgeous vintage handles…love, love them! I am in love with this adorable little wood deer ornament that came to me as a surprise one day from Kelly at Art By Kelly. Just a small sampling of her charming work!
I originally bought this lamp to fix up and sell, but fell in love with it! Thinking it’s going to stay with me for a bit. I covered one of my old lamp shade frames with jute and burlap and topped it with a cute little finial and am so happy with how it turned out.
Not the greatest pic, but hopefully you can see the tree and the ornaments a bit. I added rhinestones to a bunch of old vintage hardware, knobs, and door plates to hang as ornaments this year.
Love my deer pillow from last year. I believe this came from Tuesday Morning? Had to add a bit of a neutral flannel and a rhinestone as a little scarf on him.
A view from the (work in progress) dining room. With my partially set table : ) I will hopefully soon get up my dining room before and after post. Hoping you all will put the pressure on so I get it up sooner than later.
Eventually those verticals are coming down and will be replaced with dropcloth curtains..yay!
Just a peek at the table top that I am almost done with. Trying to go for a driftwood finish, but the table had so much damage that it is taking me a lot longer than I thought. I am super happy with how the chairs turned out and can’t wait to share more pics with you on those!
Well, that’s it for now. Sorry to be getting this up so late, but hoping you enjoyed it all the same.
Wishing you and your families a Very Merry Christmas, filled with lots of love and laughter.
